This painting is called “260.841” because that was the (just try to imagine this) average speed (in kph) of Pedro Rodriguez’s´fastest lap during the 1971 1000 Kilometers of Spa, which produced a hard-fought battle all the way between the two Gulf Porsche 917s of Rodriguez/Jackie Oliver, the eventual winners, and polesitters Jo Siffert/Derek Bell.
